CT-based NXT-ID makes its new smart wallet official this week at the CES. This marks the first time that the general public will be able to see and experience Wocket.
NXT-ID will also be unveiling new colors, materials, production and prototype accessory designs for the Wocket this week.
Wocket is the world’s first smart wallet, the next evolution in smart devices, following the smartphone and smartwatch. Wocket is designed to protect your identity and replace all the cards in your wallet, with no smartphone or internet connection required. The Wocket works virtually anywhere credit cards are accepted; stores up to 10,000 cards, records, coupons and other data, and only works with your biometric (voice) stamp of approval.
Credit, debit, ATM, loyalty, gift, ID, membership and insurance cards; tickets; emergency, medical and business contacts; coupons and virtually any card can be stored and protected on the Wocket. Unlike other smart cards and digital wallets, Wocket is a standalone device and doesn’t rely on insecure connections to smartphones, apps or the internet to store or transmit personal information.
All personal information is encrypted and stored on Wocket’s tamper-proof chip. Wocket owners have the option of using a smartphone app to configure their wallet and install firmware updates – for security, personal information remains on the Wocket and is not transmitted.
NXT-ID is focused on the growing m-commerce market, launching its innovative MobileBio® suite of biometric solutions that secure consumers’ mobile platforms, led by the Wocket®, a next-generation smart wallet designed to replace all the cards in your wallet, no smartphone required.
